افتراضي The religion of islam


The first thing that one should know and clearly understand about Islam is what the word "Islam" itself means. The religion of Islam is not named after a person as in the case of Christianity which was named after Jesus Christ, Buddhism after Gotama Buddha, Confucianism after Confucius, and Marxism after Karl Marx. Nor was it named after a
tribe like Judaism after the tribe of Judah and Hinduism after the Hindus. Islam is the true religion of "Allah" and as such, its name represents the
central principle of Allah's "God's" religion; the total submission to the will of Allah "God". The Arabic word "Islam" means the submission or
surrender of one's will to the only true God worthy of worship "Allah" and anyone who does so is termed a "Muslim". The word also implies "peace" which is the natural consequence of total submission to the will of Allah.Hence, it was not a new religion brought by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)' in Arabia in the seventh century, but only the true religion of Allath re-expressed in its final form.
(1) PBUH: peace be upon him.

Islam is the religion which was given to Adam, the first man and the first prophet of Allah, and it was the religion of all the prophets sent by Allah to mankind. The name of God's religion,Islam,was not decided
upon by later generations of man. It was chosen by Allah Himself and clearly mentioned in His final revelation to man. In the final book of divine revelation, the Qur'aan, Allah states the following:

"This day have I pertected your religlon for you, completed My favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion".
(Soorah Al-Maa'idah 5:3)

"If anyone desires a religlon other than lslam (submlesion to Allah (God) never will it be accepted
of Hlm" (Soorah Aal'imraan 3:85)

"Abreham was not a Jew noryet a Christian; butan upright Muslim." (Soorah Aal'imraan 3:67)
Nowhere in the Bible will you find Allah saying to
Prophet Moses' people or their descendants that

their religion is Judaism, nor to the followers of Christ that their religion is Christianity. In fact. Christ was not even his name, nor was it Jesus! The name "Christ" comes from the Greek word Christos which means the annointed. That is, Christ is a Greek translation of the Hebrew title “Messiah” The name "Jesus" on the other hand, is a latinized version of the Hebrew name Esau.

For simplicity's sake, I will however continue to rafer to Prophet Esau (PBUH) as Jesus. As for his religion, it was what he called his followers to. Like the prophets before him, he called the people to surrender their will to the will of Allah; (which is Islam) and he warned them to stay away from the false gods of human imagination.

According to the New Testament, he taught his followers to pray as follows: "Yours willbe done on earth as it is in Heaven"

Since the total submission of one's will to Allah
represents the essence of worship. the basic
message of Allah's divine religion, Islam is the
worship of Allah alone and the avoidance of worship
directed to any person, place or thing other tharn

Allah. Since everything other than Allah, the Creator
of all things, is Allah's creation; it may be said that
Islam, in essence calls man away from the worship
of creation and invites him to worship only its
Creator. He is the only one deserving man's worship
as it is only by His will that prayers are answered. If
man prays to a tree and his prayers are answered, it
was not the tree which answered his prayers but
Allah who allowed the circumstances prayed for to
take place. One might say, "That is obvious,"
however, to tree-worshippers it might not be.
Similarly, prayers to Jesus, Buddha, or Krishna, to
Saint Christopher, or Saint Jude or even to
Muhammad, are not answered by them but are
answered by Allah. Jesus did not tell his followers to
worship him but to worship Allah. As the Qur'aan

"And beholdl Allah will say: "O Jesus the son of
Maryl Did you say to men, Worship me and my
mother as gods besides Allah?'He willsayGlory to
you I could never say what I had no right (to say)”
Soorah Al-Maa'idah- 5:116.

Nor did he worship himself when he worshipped
but rather he worshipped Allah. This basic principle is
enshrined in the opening chapter of the Qur'aan,
known as Soorah Al-Faatihah, verse 4:

"You alone do we worshlp and from you alone do
we seek help".

Elsewhere, in the final book of revelation, the
Qur'aan, Allah also said:
"And your Lord says:"Call on Me and I will answer
."(Soorah Mu'min 40:60)

It is worth noting that the basic message of Islam is
that Allah and His creation are distinctly different
entities. Neither is Allah His creation or a part of it, nor is
.His creation Him or a part of Hinm
